Welcome Bill.There is nothing quiet like flying so please keep us updated with your progress. How did you get interested in it? Has it been a long term aim or a spur decision?

Thanks for your good wishes. I caught up with an old friend in the Whitsundays recently and he has been flying ultralights for a lot of years. I've done a lot of long distance sailing and found the similarities between that and cross country flying uncanny (airfoil dynamics, navigation, small engine maintenance, safety procedures, voyage planning, et). A little bit of web research later and the bug has bitten!
